I ran into issues with Flex Itemrenderers after applying custom styles to a Datagrid.
Displaying the data in a standard Datagrid Column worked fine, such as:
<mx:DataGridColumn headerText="First Name" dataField="firstName" >
But an itemrenderer component just ignored all style declarations.
All I wanted to achieve is having my itemrenderer using the same text color and
textSelectedColor as I declared for the DataGrid in my css file.
After a bit of research I found a solution that works.

custom itemrenderer I had to override its updateDisplayList Method.

But it is the only quick solution I could find so far.
If using the Advanced Datagrid you need to change ListBase to:
for this example to work.
