The front derailleur has a 16 tooth capacity.
While it might still "work" (i've never tried) you'd run the risk of chain slippage etc

Possibly no help at all...
Did 53/36 on Dura Ace
99% of time it was fine but every so often chain would take a little longer to move from small to big ring.

Why are you thinking about doing this?
