How to use gaudy in a sentence?

  1. Eleanor Janega:

    The desire to be' accurate' suddenly disappears when sex isn't involved and it is actual interesting day to day minutiae, if the(' Game of Thrones') world was historically accurate, why isn't every single noble house or castle absolutely covered by huge gaudy, colourful murals ? Why is it that this form of historical accuracy isn't important, but showing rape as endemic is ?

  2. Henry Louis Mencken:

    A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.

  3. Italo Calvino:

    I am prisoner of a gaudy and unlivable present, where all forms of human society have reached an extreme of their cycle and there is no imagining what new forms they may assume.

  4. Dolly Partonhas:

    I’m most comfortable in high heels and wigs and makeup and gaudy clothes.

  5. Jacob Alspector:

    The Vessel is like some MC Escher nightmare, the Vessel's kind of relentless. The Vessel's very gaudy, The Vessel's very cold. The Vessel's thrilling... The Vessel's not the most friendly and life-affirming and inclusive kind of space or structure. The Vessel's kind of empty. What's the point of The Vessel ? Just to walk up and walk down ?
