- gorgeous (adj.)
- c. 1500, "splendid, showy, sumptuously adorned" (of clothing), from Middle French gorgias "elegant, fashionable," of unknown origin; perhaps a special use of gorgias "necklace" (and thus "fond of or resembling jewelry"), from Old French gorge "throat," also "something adorning the throat" (see gorge (n.)).
