George Clooney saved his wife Amal Clooney from a potential wardrobe malfunction as they walked the red carpet for the 45th annual Kennedy Center Honors gala dinner.

As the couple posed for photographers at the star-studded event which took place in Washington, DC, on Saturday, the "Ticket to Paradise" star stopped to adjust the back of his wife's gown which had become tangled at the back.

Clooney, 61, was photographed bending down to unfold the train of the floorlength scarlet red dress while Amal, 41, smiled awkwardly at the cameras. In another photo, he is seen with his hands outstretched in admiration of his handiwork as Amal gazed over her shoulder at her husband.

The legal professional's gown was designed by Valentino, according to Vogue, and featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and fitted silhouette in addition to the long sweeping train. Amal accessorized the look with a matching red clutch and heels.

Her husband, meanwhile, wore a smart black tuxedo with a black bow tie for the occasion.

Speaking to Extra on the red carpet, Amal shared that George doesn't just fix her dresses, but also fixes practically everything for their 5-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander.

Asked what his young children think of him, George responded: "They're 5, so right now, I am golden."

Amal added: "They say: 'Papa can fix everything but the weather…' He can solve all of their problems and is the funniest person they have met."

The couple, who have been married since 2014, were in attendance at the annual awards ceremony to see the "Gravity" actor honored for his lifetime achievements.

Every year since 1978, the Kennedy Center Honors have taken place in December to celebrate five honorees and their lifetime of contributions to American culture.

Speaking to ABC News, Clooney said: "Growing up in a small town in Kentucky I could never have imagined that someday I'd be the one sitting in the balcony at the Kennedy Center Honors.

"To be mentioned in the same breath with the rest of these incredible artists is an honor. This is a genuinely exciting surprise for the whole Clooney family."

Those honored on the evening also included singer-songwriter Amy Grant, musician Gladys Knight, composer, conductor, and educator Tania León, and U2, which is comprised of band members Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr.
