Ann Richards, then governor of Texas, appeared on the cover of Texas Monthly in a “Bad Girl” pose astride a white-and-chrome Harley-Davidson. However, Richards had not posed for the photo. Instead, it was created by combining a stock photo of her head with a picture of a model. Texas Monthly had approached Richards about posing for an actual shot, but had decided to create a composite because the governor was unable to schedule enough time for a photoshoot. Richards later said that she loved the cover photo.
