Dresses worn by Jennifer Garner, Joss Stone, Fantasia, Virginia Madsen, Tyra Banks, Minnie Driver, Sharon Stone and others will be part of a special event auction Thursday, with proceeds going to the Cure Autism Now Foundation.

The special celebration will also honor the 2005 Stylemakers of the Year, including the most influential celebrities, fashion designers, stylists and retailers.
