'out' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I cannot see how they can define each other.

'is' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for gaudiness that I've seen before include "Tasteless showiness" , "Ostentation" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
