The essence of Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers in the fashion editorial you never saw coming [pics]

Give it some thought: The cast of the animated franchise "Shrek" lends itself to a sultry fashion editorial -- think: Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas, Eddie Murphy and new addition Jon Hamm; even Mike Myers, with the help of the right stylist.

Lo and behold, V Man magazine concurs. The catch: The spread features the cartoon counterparts of the boldface bunch. The animated characters of "Shrek" have been given the glossy treatment, including the eponymous green ogre, his bride Princess Fiona and Banderas' Puss in Boots.

The spread hypes the May 21 release of the final Shrek film, "Shrek Forever After." Keep going after the jump for more pics, including Diaz's Fiona getting down with her babies in the Standard's cocktail lounge, and Puss in Boots being hand-fed grapes by a young rocker type.

Ellen von Unwerth did the shoot at New York's Standard Hotel, and stylist Nicola Formichetti (who has outfitted Miss Telephone herself) paired the characters with edgy young things in various states of decadence -- a sharp turn in the typical marketing of family fare.
