Christmas isn't quite complete without hearing Marian Carey's All I Want For Christmas is You. And this year, the singer gave fans exactly what they wanted when she released a new music video to go with her festive hit, 25 years after the song debuted.

In a special behind-the-scenes promotion for the new video, released on Sunday, December 22, Carey showcases what went into making it – complete with nutcrackers and candy canes. And it looks like a little bit of the UAE made its way onto the special video as well – among her many looks, including a Santa playsuit, Carey is seen sporting a scooped neck, fully-sequined green dress from Dubai designer Alina Anwar.

"I hope to see more and more Hollywood stars wear my brand and as a Dubai-based fashion label, I am so overwhelmed by the trust that they are giving me. I am here to advocate UAE-made products are world-class," said Anwar, in a released statement. In the past, the designer has dressed celebrities such as Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Jenna Dewan.

Now, just to clarify, if you're looking for this dress in the official music video, you won't find it. It only features in the behind-the-scenes promotional video, which has already raked up 599,000 views (at last count).

All I Want for Christmas is You, part of Carey's Merry Christmas album, celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, prompting the singer to promote it on social media. And this year saw the song top the billboard charts for the first time.

The star marked the occasion with a tweet on Monday, December 16, featuring happy emojis. “We did it,” read the tweet.

According to The Economist, Carey has earned more than $60 million (Dh220.3m) in royalties from the track over the years.
