Ryan Seacrest knows how to handle just about anything with grace – including a wardrobe malfunction!

In a clip from Tuesday's episode around the :30 mark, Seacrest, 47, opened by introducing his guest host, original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy personality Carson Kressley. However, when they sat down to start the show, the Emmy Award winner realized he forgot to zip his pants, telling Kressley, "By the way, my fly is down."

"I guess you're just happy to see me!" Kressley, 52, joked of the mishap.

Earlier this year, the television personality experienced a similar wardrobe issue while hosting the season finale of American Idol in May.

Seacrest made a quick change during the live episode after it was brought to his attention that the pair of undies he was wearing gave the audience an "enhancing" view of his anatomy.

Calling the incident "a little embarrassing" during an episode of Live, Seacrest revealed he enlisted longtime stylist Miles Siggins for a backup pair of underwear.

"It was in the middle of a live show! We go backstage during the commercial and find a little corner and I'm literally taking off my pants, off my underwear, and putting his on," Seacrest told his co-host, Kelly Ripa.

"It was the first for me for a live show," Seacrest added. "Anything for [American Idol]. It's a family show."
