After 11 days, Sonam Kapoor finally took to the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival for the closing ceremony and the ‘Therese Desqueyroux’ premiere this evening in her ambassador role for L’Oreal.

I have to say I’m a tad disappointed by her in this Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 gown, as it is on my Pinterest wish list pinboard for Cate Blanchett.

Sonam doesn’t quite have enough presence to pull off this dark, mysterious tulle embroidered gown for me. Especially when paired with simple black pumps.

Where’s the excitement? Where is the story? Where is the danger?

Even with the red pout, it just falls a bit flat and lacks intrigue for me.
