SAG Awards: Chris Colfer on his fashion showdown with Meryl Streep

Awards fashion can be just as competitive as any nominee categories when it comes to shows like Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony. Just ask Chris Colfer and Meryl Streep.

We were tickled to learn both stars were sporting looks from British designer Vivienne Westwood, Colfer in a black tux from the Spring 2012 collection and Streep in a belted couture creation. 

While the two certainly weren't in the same style garment and wouldn't likely compete for fashion press, we asked the young "Glee" guy anyway: Who wore Westwood best?

"She did! She did!" Colfer told us emphatically at the the People/Entertainment Industry Foundation SAG Awards after-party, shocked to learn they'd been outfitted by the same house. "But I hope they put us in a magazine together."

Streep lost the female actor trophy to Viola Davis of "The Help," and the folks of "Modern Family" kept the "Glee" cast in their seats on Sunday. But looking good is the best revenge, yes?

Streep will continue on the road to the Oscars with her Margaret Thatcher biopic, "The Iron Lady." Colfer remains a regular on Ryan Murphy's high school musical, and is hoping to release his feature "Struck by Lightning" in the fall.
