Defining two different ErrorLabelStyle:

<Style x:Key="ErrorLabelStyle" TargetType="Label">
    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Orange" />
    <Setter Property="VerticalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />
    <Setter Property="HorizontalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />
</Style>
<Style x:Key="ErrorLabelStyleAlt" TargetType="Label">
    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="DarkGray" />
    <Setter Property="VerticalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />
    <Setter Property="HorizontalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />
</Style>

                     Grid.Row="1" 
                     ErrorLabelStyle="{StaticResource ErrorLabelStyle}"
                     ValidationMode="LostFocus">
    <telerik:RadDataForm.BindingContext>
        <local:DataTypeEditorsModel />
    </telerik:RadDataForm.BindingContext>
</telerik:RadDataForm>

Apply ErrorLabelStyle per editor

                     AutoGenerateItems="False" 
                     Grid.Row="3"  
                     ValidationMode="LostFocus">
    <telerik:DataFormRadEntryEditor PropertyName="FirstName" 
                                HeaderText="Name" 
                                ErrorLabelStyle="{StaticResource ErrorLabelStyle}" />
    <telerik:DataFormRadNumericEditor PropertyName="Email" 
                                      HeaderText="Email address" 
                                      Minimum="1" 
                                      ErrorLabelStyle="{StaticResource ErrorLabelStyleAlt}" />
