How to get color of a QLabel.setObjectName("special_color") from palette?

  • Is there a way to get it without regexping styleSheet?

    label = QLabel()
    # color of normal QLable (white)
    color = label.palette().color(QPalette.Text)
    #color = ?


    QLabel {
    	color: white;
    QLabel#special_color:hover {
    	color: green;

    Basically I write my own QLabel, because native QLabel doesn't support things I need. So before drawing text, I wanted to get its color(special_color) from stylesheet.
    Can I get it through QPalette?
    It must be stored somewhere in memory but the actual css file, no?
