The actress, who stars as Carrie Mathison in the hit US drama, spoke to the new issue of ASOS magazine about her favourite fashion picks.
"I'm a sales sl*t. I'm just very seduced by a sale," Danes admitted. "In New York buying clothes is fun, because it really is boutiquey. I like Legacy and Opening Ceremony, and I love Prada. I have a lot of J Brand and Citizens of Humanity jeans.
"It's funny with jeans now, because if they don't feel like a pair of sweatpants, I don't have patience for them anymore! I think I'm becoming increasingly lazy."
Photographed exclusively by Danielle Levitt at LA's Chateau Marmont, Danes spoke about the "leap of faith" she had taken in joining Homeland.
"We only had the faintest sense of where the writers were going to take the story, and I think they were discovering it themselves as they went along, which is one of the reasons television can be so exciting," she told the magazine. "But it's always just such a relief when a story that you care about and a character that you've worked so terribly hard to create manages to translate."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old revealed that her latest obsession is UK reality series The Only Way Is Essex.
"Damn, I love that show," she said. "[TOWIE] is just so good. We don't have anything that rivals it. I don't even care if it's real or not, it's thoroughly entertaining."
