adj.

late 15c., “splendid, showy” (of clothing), from Middle French gorgias “elegant, fashionable,” of unknown origin; perhaps literally “necklace” (and thus “fond of jewelry”), from Old French gorge “bosom, throat,” also “something adorning the throat.” A connection to the Greek proper name Gorgias (supposedly in reference to a notorious sophist) also has been proposed. Related: Gorgeousness.
