Everyone's wondering if Melania Trump paid for her Kors ensemble herself

Aside from the Twitterverse debating whether or not Melania's black, sequined outfit for Trump's first joint address to Congress was "appropriate," the internet is also wondering how her look came to be.

Considering the ongoing controversy surrounding designers choosing to dress or not dress the first lady, people are questioning if Michael Kors himself provided FLOTUS with her jacket and skirt Tuesday -- or if she dished out nearly $10,000 herself.

See the outfit everyone's buzzing about:
