As he accepted his golden statue, Rami Malek was all smiles, with a crooked bow tie.
Not even fashion icon Lady Gaga could keep Rami Malek's bow tie straight.
The "Bohemian Rhapsody" star arrived at the Academy Awards Sunday dressed to the nines in a sleek black suit and bow tie. But the newly crowned Best Actor had a little fashion trouble throughout the night.
Malek was caught getting some help on the red carpet. Two men were seen straightening his bow tie on two separate occasions outside. But the assistance didn't stop there.
During the show inside the Dolby Theater, girlfriend Lucy Boynton, who starred in the Queen biopic with Malek, gestured toward her man's neckwear in the audience and, according to photos posted on social media, also attempted to lend him a hand on the carpet.
Even Lady Gaga tried to tame the tie too — but to no avail.

The mishap didn't put a damper on his big win though. Onstage, he thanked his mom and family, as well as his attentive girlfriend.
“Lucy Boynton, you’re the heart of this film. You are beyond immensely talented you have captured my heart. Thank you so much," Malek said.
