EYE SCOOP

Que Pasa? Talk about bad planning. Penelope Cruz and Tom Cruise both made stops at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid this month but the two never crossed paths. She was recently in town for the European launch of Ralph Lauren’s latest fragrance Glamourous, of which she is the face. He was there promoting “Vanilla Sky” a few weeks earlier and spent an afternoon at the embassy just hanging out. For Cruz, the embassy visit was a little more festive with a 60-person dinner in the formal dining room. While it poured outside, festivities reigned inside, as guests including Spain’s First Lady Ana Asnar, Nati Abascal, the Countess of Romanones and Jose Toledo dined on spinach-wrapped sole. But in true Spanish style, dinner started late and guests didn’t leave until nearly 2 a.m. — all holding fresh bottles of Glamorous and diamond necklaces, courtesy of Senor Lauren.
