is translated above as:
I guess a woman's past from the way she holds her cigarettes
I would have translated the French to read "I guess a woman's past by the way she holds her cigarettes.
Thank you for your comment! Both (from the way / by the way) are equally correct.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
